The Child Neurology Society’s 2017 conference will be held at the Sheraton Crown Center in Kansas City, MO from October 4th to October 7th, 2017. This year, the first day of the conference will be entirely dedicated to the leukodystrophies. The Young Investigators Program allows qualifying young researchers to travel to the conference free of charge. This year, the program is sponsored by The World Leukodystrophy Alliance and the Leukodystrophy Care Network.
The Sheraton Crown Center is located below Children’s Mercy Hospital and adjacent to Hallmark’s corporate headquarters, with its family-friendly cluster of entertainment (LegoLand and Sea World), restaurants and shops. The outstanding World War I Museum and the beautifully restored Union Depot are 5 minutes away by foot, and the renowned Power and Light District’s shops, restaurants and clubs are a mere 5 minutes away via free shuttle bus service. The Nelson-Adkins Museum of Art, the American Jazz Museum, and the Negro Baseball League Hall of Fame Museum are all “Uber-easy” to get to in 15 minutes.
